A true testament to Nike’s commitment to skateboarding is seen in the technology and variations of style in their line of Nike SB shoes.
With a sleek, versatile, simple design overall, Nike skate shoes work well with just about every style clothing, whether you want a classic lace up or an easygoing slip on. If you plan on wearing the shoe for a long day, consider getting a very lightweight pair for added comfort. While deciding on what sneaker to purchase, do not forget to consider material. While suede and leather are a classic look, canvas helps keep your feet cooler on hot days. If you are looking for maximum airflow consider getting a mesh shoe. Because of Nike’s focus on innovation, there are a lot of different technologies that are incorporated into different shoes, like sock-liner technology or herringbone outsole pattern, so make sure to check what bonuses your shoe might have.
When choosing your Nike SB, there are a few things to consider. These shoes are designed to optimize your skateboarding skill and experience. The flat bottom maximizes the surface contact between your board and your shoes, this will help you feel more stable, giving you an added grip. There are two sole construction design styles that skaters tend to stick to. The “vulcanized” style is designed to be quite flexible, and lightweight and is ideal for those who want to go out and really focus on tricks. The “cupsole” design is thicker and tends to have much more impact protection, targeted more for those who are doing harder impact tricks. However, many in the skateboarding community have both styles depending on how they plan on skating that day.
Nike skateboarding shoes are also great for BMX biking. When performing tricks, it’s important to have solid foot placement on your bike, just as you would a skateboard. The gum rubber on Nike sneakers has a great grip. Another important consideration is impact absorption for going off jumps. Again, shop around and see what style and type of skate shoe works best for you.
